Château Sixtine Manus Dei Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2019
- Rich, full-bodied
The Manus Dei wines are made by the esteemed crew at Château Sixtine in the Southern Rhône, whose wines have been thrilling us for years. This is their top Châteauneuf-du-Pape, made from the classic grenache, syrah and mourvèdre. It’s ripe and full of juicy red fruits, like blood plums, raspberries and piquant red currants. Along with all of that generous fruit are dark earthy notes and a structure that suggests serious ageability. Just what you’d expect from a producer of such calibre. If you are after a full-bodied red to enjoy on a special occasion, this is certainly the wine for you.
Full price $80.00 from the producer.

My sister Nicci calls these "puddingstone wines", because the vines are literally grown on soils lightly covering giant boulders roughly translated as "pudding stones". Châteauneuf-du-Pape has a rich history, and the reds (usually grenache-predominant) can be a blend of up to 13 grape varieties, including some cheeky whites to round out the mix. The resultant wines are complex, brooding but usually not giant, and delicious. Especially if you call them puddingstone wines.
